Elegant Peony

OK, sometimes I just get it right. Totally right, LOL. I adore how this card came out! I don't normally say that about my own stuff, but this is one of the few. It took me forever to color the flowers with Copics, (colored pencils are so much faster!) but I think the result was worth it. It's actually a card for my good friend and neighbor whose birthday is today. (It's also my daughter's birthday!) I hope she likes it as much as I do!
I am really loving the flower sets from Papertrey Ink, they are wonderful for coloring! They need to keep it up and keep putting out more flower stamps!
I also used silk ribbon to make this bow, and I am totally hooked on this stuff. I got it from Stamp Simply. The colors are luscious, and it ties beautifully.
Anyway, we're off to Hershey Park tomorrow, we couldn't go for Julie's birthday today, so we're going tomorrow instead. It's supposed to rain but I hope not, it's the only day we can go.
Thanks for stopping by!
